I suggest you ...

More user control over fonts and colors

It would be very useful to allow users of Outliner to pick their own font sizes for entering information. The ability to make different line entries different colors would also be great.

        I disagree & agree with this. I really like Outliner due to it's simplicity and not over abundance of theme/font customizations which can slow down a UI. However, if done simply, I think it could be helpful. Similar to how you can color/tag files on a Mac. I think a similar concept would work here.This way to could highlight important info.

        One of the things that I treasure in Carbon Fin Outliner is the simplicity. There are many outliners that have fonts and colors and pictures and music and videos. And we all have programs for aesthetics and presentation. But I use CF Outliner for outlining.

        Colors would be very helpful!

        I agree. Font selection and coloring entries can be very useful. Although an outline can help with organizing items rather than using coloring, there are times when coloring can be used to help keep track of important items that cross node (or level) boundaries. I'm using Outliner to keep important notes organized by journal article for my disseration. Coloring different items can help me not lose track of items by adding an additional dimension to the tree structure of an outline.

        I would like to create a template that I can set the color, font type and size for each level in the outline. E.G. Level 1 is Arial bold, size 14, Black. Level 2 is Arial bold, size 12, Blue. etc..

        Or if this idea is implemented, give the option to work in plain text, or in formatted text.

        I disagree.
        I would much, much rather keep Outliner to enter raw data and information, and then have the ability to export it to Word document with a hierarchical bullet point list style. There, in Word, I could play with the styles to make my data look as nice as I want.

        The ability to set a font colour would be great

        I agree that having font colors would be great. I use outlines when I''m preaching, It would be very helpful to highlight for emphasis.

        Assigning colors to different levels would make lists much easier to use. And, I think it's a great app!

        I'd be happy with a small variety of font colors in order to highlight certain points

      • AnonymousAnonymous commented  · 

        I Teach from these outlines. I would love the ability to highlight, color change, and font change!
